Boss Audio’s New BVCPA9W Offers a Big Screen With Single-DIN mounting

Does your vehicle only have the smaller single-DIN installation space available? If so, and you still want a large screen, check out this new offering from Boss Audio.

Many older vehicles only have the smaller Single-DIN space in their dash. This is unfortunate since so many great new head units fitting into the larger Double-DIN space are now available in all price ranges. One option for those in this situation is to opt for a unit like Boss Audio’s New BVCPA9W.

The unit slides into a Single-DIN space and then sits proud of the dash to offer a large nine-inch screen. Called a “floating head unit,” the screen can tilt and rotate, making it easy to find the perfect angle for viewing from your driver’s seat. If you have a passenger onboard, they can easily configure the screen for their control.

Boss Audio’s new BVCPA9W has many of the features shoppers want in the under $500 price point. These include:
-Mech-Less design (No moving parts, no CD player)
-80 Watts x 4 Max Power, Balance/Fader and Preset built-in EQ
-Plays Bluetooth/USB, MP3, WAV, AVI, FM/AM,
-Compatible with Audio out from Smart Phones and MP3 Players
-USB, AV, Rear Camera, Steering Wheel Control Input
-Front, Rear & Sub Pre Amp Outputs
-USB Charging, Multi Color Illumination Options,
-Bluetooth Hands-Free, Make and receive calls, Bluetooth Audio Streaming. Play and control music and apps like -Spotify/Pandora wirelessly
-Easy updating via the USB port

Using your phone is made easy with both wireless and wired connections. One important feature we really like about this Boss unit is that it includes a license plate mount rear view camera so that you can see what’s going on behind you while backing up.

Torque News found the unit in stock and priced at $421.81 at Amazon. Prime members can get the unit with free shipping. That’s a smidge less than Boss sells the unit for on their own website ($449.99).

Those looking for a sub-$500 quality head unit with a big screen that can mount in a Single-DIN slot should check out this new Boss Audio BVCPA9W.
